An overview of the development of stress laminated cellular timber bridge decks for short to medium span applications in Australia was presented. The testing program for both plate and cellular deck systems was based on 'full scale' laboratory testing, involving application of loads that modeled both the design serviceability and design ultimate conditions. The field performance of four prototype bridges utilizing the cellular deck system demonstrated the structural efficiency and cost effectiveness of the technology.
